    Service was lackluster from our server. Waited took forever for drinks while other tables or more guest that came after us received their cocktails quickly and even their appetizer. After she dropped off drinks took her a while to return for us to order or meal. Wasn’t a fan of the Caesar dressing. The cocktails were ok.

    Now that The Palm is part of Landry's there are a lot of changes with the food and wine, and not for the better. The service is still excellent. The ambience is still excellent. The wine list has become a mediocre value selection and there are misses with the food, most predominantly no seasoning. Additionally, I ordered the fish special, and it was beautifully presented but had to be sent back as it wasn't cooked. We will still go back as the meat selections are great.

    Terrible service. I am 20 years old and did not order alcohol and I believe because of my age and the fact that I was not ordering alcohol, the servers did not give my party the time of day. I spent lots of money on subpar food and this was a very momentous and special occasion as someone in my party turned 21, and this was certainly not the right decision to come to this restaurant.

    My family is old-school-Palm fans. We have been to most of them over some 30+ years and worried that in the transition of ownership (to Landry) that things would change. The Boston location was our first venture into the post transition Palm organization. The decor was the same (big comfy booths and tables along with caricatures on the walls) - and the menu looked very similar (although some things went up in price -- but that is true everywhere these days). The steak tartare, caesar salad, cocktails, steak, (cooked to perfection) and even the carrot cake for dessert were all very good and at The Palm quality levels. But it was the service that surprised us. GREAT SERVICE -- from our welcome, to seating, recommendations for food selection, visits from Ryan the manager to check on us, and dutiful attention from our server Mackenzie -- our experience was superb. We will send our friends and definitely visit other Palm restaurants now.

    Server was nice but didn’t seem attentive enough for what seemed a not busy lunch rush. Person I went with ordered the power lunch and got first and second course at the same time. I ordered the Gigi salad and .. it was the most bland salad I have ever eaten in my life. I always try to like the food here but I can’t force it so I just can’t go back again.

    The food and service are excellent. I particularly like The Palm because the noise level is reasonable; it's much easier to hear conversations compared to other restaurants in the area. To me, that's worth paying extra for.

    Ever since Landry’s has purchased The Palm, a once high end steakhouse, the overall experience has diminished. Gone is the hearts of palm salad, gone is the 100O island home made dressing and replaced with shelf brands I had the veal parmigiana, the tomato sauce was cold, lifeless, and out of a can. Certainly not the Palm experience I have been accustomed to for many many years. Have “scratched” The Palm of my restaurant list

    In a city with no shortage of high-end restaurants, the Palm Boston always delivers a superior dining experience. What makes this restaurant truly special is the consistently great food, stylish ambiance, and, most of all, the incredible long-tenured team here. From the moment we arrived, we feel welcomed and appreciated. Our server and bartender were truly impeccable! Sebastian, the bartender makes the best old fashions in Boston and is always a delight. Most of all, with every visit we have made to the Palm this year, Ryan, the General Manager has personally checked in with our table. He truly cares about our experience in his restaurant, and his team truly delivers on his high expectations. A real class act. We simply cannot recommend the Palm enough and look forward to our next visit with Ryan and his team.
